Curb Slope

Thanks for any advise.

I’ve attached a couple pictures, one showing the slope out to in on a torpedo level and another showing right to left on the curb.

Seems to me that the water should drain faster, is this enough slope?

Thank you

From left to right, it should be level. The pitch should be at least 1/8 inch, I usually shoot for 3/16. You probably have a little less than 1/8 if I had to guess.

Less than 1/16

Thanks Davy.

It is sloped right to left, about a half an inch lower on left across 50 inch curb.

I did some playing with the level and it’s less than 1/16, right at 1/16 at best on the slope.

Not good huh?

Thanks again

Surface tension will usually keep it all from running off and yours will run off slower than it should. I don't know if it's worth fixing.

Is this a tile curb?

Is it a new installation? If so, you might talk to the installer.

Yeah.....should have been adjusted while it was being installed....just a tad more than what you have.

Depending on how it was installed, I might consider removal and replacement with a bit more slope.

If it's otherwise installed properly and the waterproofing layer might be compromised during removal, I'd probably just wipe it down with a towel after each use.
